Now you know we at SoCal Sports Annals could not let what happened at Staples Center regarding Los Angeles’ newly retired legend go by without showing some recognition and love, did you?
Let us show that love through photos and videos from last night’s epic final performance…

COMING ON MONDAY:
We will have an article that will give a full appreciation and honor to a man who – except for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone – has scored more points than anyone in NBA history and whose place in the Basketball Hall of Fame is a 100,000% guaranteed lock.
Be sure you come to this site to check out what will essentially be part two of our homage to SoCal’s newest sports legend
